Accurate elemental analysis of functional polymer additives using X-ray fluorescence

The webinar will discuss accurately elemental analysis of functional polymer additives and elements representative for RoHS/REACH regulated substances, using X-ray Fluorescence (XRF).

Different XRF solutions using dedicated and unique polymeric XRF calibration standards will be explained. Comparison with European Reference Materials and results of international Proficiency Testing Programs are discussed demonstrating our unique solutions.

The webinar targets operators and managers from process- and quality control departments of polymer industries and service labs, interested in advanced XRF solutions for the polymer industry.
